President Donald Trump says that the United States is ready to take action if China does not take a tougher stand against North Korea’s nuclear program.
Trump’s comments in an interview with the Financial Times come just a week before US President’s historic meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago estate in South Florida. The top issues for the talks are: North Korea, Trade, Currency Manipulation, China’s military expansion and The South China Sea.
“I have great respect for him. I have great respect for China. I would not be at all surprised if we did something that would be very dramatic and good for both countries and I hope so,” Trump told the newspaper for a story that appeared Sunday on its website.
About North Korea, Trump said: “Yes, we will talk about North Korea. And China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t. And if they do that will be very good for China, and if they don’t it won’t be good for anyone.”
“I think trade is the incentive. It is all about trade,” Trump said when he was asked what might motivate China to help.
Asked how he would solve North Korea, Trump said: “I’m not going to tell you. You know, I am not the United States of the past where we tell you where we are going to hit in the Middle East. Where they say — I used it in the speeches — ‘We will be attacking Mosul in four months’. A month later, ‘We will be attaching Mosul in three months, in two months, in one month’. And why are they talking? There is no reason to talk.”
